. HISTORY AND REMINISCENCES OF THE CONNELLY AND WALKER FAMILIES by Wm. W. Hooke, 1900
. JOHN WALKER Sr. of AUGUSTA Co. VIRGINIA married Miss Sarah CONNELLY of Augusta Co. Va. The Walker
. and Connelly families immigrated to America about the middle of the 17th century [Lin: sic - later it says they landed
. in 1720]. They were Scotch-Irish Protestants, and in church connection Presbyterians. Alexander (Arthur) Connelly had
. four sons and one daughter, named Arthur, Alexander, Samuel, Williamson and Sarah Connelly. Arthur Connelly was
. killed by Indians to procure his rifle, which he had refused to sell to them. Alexander Connelly rode under a tree for
. shelter in a thunder storm. Lightning struck the tree, killing man and horse. Samuel Connelly moved to KENTUCKY,
. married and raised a family. Williamson Connelly went to MISSISSIPPI and engaged in surveying land for the govern-
. ment. He never married that his relatives knew of. Those Connellys were back to Virginia to visit relatives, the writer
. recollects them, about the year 1834. The writer also recollects seeing his old great-grandmother Connelly when she was
. nearly 90 years old, and living in her daughter's family.
. JOHN WALKER Sr. and Sarah (CONNELLY) his wife raised eleven children, to wit: Elizabeth, Alexander, John, Jane,
. Robert, Pollie, Sallie, Thomas, Patsie James, Rebecca.

. Alexander Walker is said to have had 21 children ( "Genealogical History of the Descendants of John Walker of Wigton,
. Scotland, 1600-1902" by Emma Siggins White, 1902). probably by 2 wives ("A Record of the Ancestry and Descendants
. of James Alexander Walker and Sarah Ann Poage From 1730 To 1930", page 36, unpublished manuscript submitted to me
. by M. Caldwell Butler). I know a great deal about his descendants through his daughter Margaret (she married Thomas
. Connely; this is my direct line) and through his son John (he married Sarah Connely d/o Arthur Connely; Arthur was the
. brother of my Thomas Connely) but I know little about his other children.
